    For those who keep said about tsunami hits P3 area in the past, please do more research and provide some proven data to us.we really appreciate that.
    As what i know from local people there, tsunami wave only hit along the coast of Balik Pulau. The water just flows into the area before the small bridge.(there is a small bridge from the coast to P3)
    There is no huge wave impact at that area.
    Here is the link which I can get from internet. But still I couldn’t get any info about tsunami hit P3 area, jalan bahru (if its really happen,sure got news came out since there got resident in the past.)

    Effects of Tsunami in Every States

    In Penang, the affected areas were along the coast of Balik Pulau, Pasir Panjang, Teluk Bahang, and Batu Feringgi. It was found that the mangrove forest areas did not experience any destruction except for a minimal effect on the saplings of “Lenggadai”, “Nyireh” and others which were affected by the tidal wave and current that flooded the forest areas. It was reported that 52 people were killed while 206 others were injured in Penang and thus recorded as the highest fatality in Malaysia due to the tsunami incident. A total of 2,486 fishermen and 86 farmers suffered loss in the aftermath of the tsunami.

    My advice to you is if you is a serious buyer who plan to buy at there, then you better go to survey yourself, in stead of keep asking or listen to people at here. Sharing at here is just for your references, the actual fact you still need to look at your self.

    Just a sharing to you, before i decided to buy, i got done some survey there. The people that stay at there for few generation not scare for the Tsunami, then what you worry for? Also from the survey result, when Tsunami, the river water will flow out to the road side only as it not a sea, so is low impact.

    Buy house at BP, is mainly to enjoy the peaceful environment. Also i viewed the show unit and actual house, the material that PLB used is really a good quality material. You can go and see by your own eye if not believe. You have to convenience yourself by look into the actual condition, environment, unit if you really want to stay there. This is just what i can share with you. No any hard feeling ya. :-)

    @Landard
    Actually Prestige III not bad. But its a bit ulu from Balik Pulau town. I think Palmyra or Botanica CT is better in terms of location. Looking at the huge river/monsoon drain also give me the creeps. Of course the tsunami still very fresh in my mind.

    Access road during peak hour very jam especially the Teluk Kumbar area. Hilly area very dangerous for driving especially raining season and will jam too during peak hour.

    I would advice any buyer to buy only in higher plain area and also nearer to Balik Pulau town.

    @Concern buyer

    Agree with your advice. But Palmyra house majority have leakage issue (my 1st view to 4 units, all leakage). Botanica CT is better, but if you view it carefully, you will see that the main road is much higher that house. This will definitely face flood issue during raining season, and it also near hill side.

    Prestige III is not very far away from BP town area is you already familiar the place. My 1st impression when i go there, i have the same impression as you said. But when i drove few times, then i feel that is not much different. For sure, this all is depend to the buyer. Some will feel not much different, some will feel is very far…… :-)

    BP good for own stay, to invest,stay away, unless for SST in P3. SST owner can easily get profit if they sale back once OC obtained. Until now, people come to this project side, asking any availability for SST – even though sold out almost two years ago. So far, 2 units still available for DST…looking for buyer.

    I like a bit ulu place, big taman good for my kids. No worries, no regret to buy here. just a matter of time.

    If houses were to be delivered in Sept then the developer must pay the overdued handover. What I knew some buyers signed the S&P in June 2012 and some even in May 2012. Normally any developer for late delivery,a cheque payment(compensation) MUST be attached together with the keys handover, and this is a SOP.

    Very soon we are all friends, if we do not share our findings and information ,help each other,then who else can help us ?
    I wish to repeat that buying property in the BP/P3 is always a winner because:-
    1) BP/P3 is IN the island
    2) 2nd bridge link. Indicating both governments are VERY keen to develope BP, Sungei Pinang & Teluk Bahang.
    3) Roads are widening and straigthening from Batu Maung onwards.
    4) BP is in the middle of Bayan Lepas FTZ and Teluk Bahang tourist distinations, a very POTENTIAL area to be developed,that is a good Fung Shui place. Which locations in the mainland got such good strategic Fung Shui ?
    5) As regard to tsunami, Prestige3 is a solid land far away from the sea as compared to some
    Penang famous housing locations (sorry cannot mention which)that use vast reclaimed land.
    And last, fyi I am not agent for any establishments and like you,I am just a buyer in P3.

    Normally the developer would send out a letter to house owner to notify collecting house keys. The date of the letter is the date that delivery of house counts. For example, the date of the notification letter is 2nd of August, then your liquidation damage will be 128.20, for one day.

  42. Kelvin

    When we get the key, we may need to trigger to the inspector on any defect found within 14 days. After that they will start the repairing within 14 days too. That day i checked my unit, not much defect, besides the car porch :-(

    But i believe the developer will complete all the complaints. Also i feel confidence to this developer as the reputation is quite good on it. The material that provided also are good quality material. If all of you do see the door lock, you will know that the door lock is cost almost Rm250 per pc and the door itself almost Rm2k.

    My S&P signed and stamped in April 2012. Price: RM468K
    I will not accept even if the legitimate compensation is 1cent less.
    The reason is simple, developer will charge penalty if bank release is delayed , developer will not release key during OC if you pay 1cent less.

    If your lawyer ask you to accept something else like free air conds, fruit baskets, you can complain to Bar Council for misrepresentation of your legal rights.

    Correct! They cannot compensate the delayed delivery by other forms except cash money, and this compensation SHOULD attached together with the handover of keys. There is NO such thing as pay later or some other days( Like manager not around,the cheque no body signed.This is just lame excuses.)Remember,keys plus compensation.The compensation is calculated on DAILY basis.For calculation,refer to pp’s message dated on 17-May-2014.
    As for defects, if not major structural faults,most developers practise comestic repair only. For major defects,like can see through crack , government should involve.

    I dropped by the site last week. The work progress of the houses (sst) seems to be satisfying. the developer has had changed the tiles (due to land sinkage problem, the joint in between vertical and horizontal tiles were widen in car pouch) and put up whitish substance to cover the drop level of sinkage at the back of the building. Apart of this, the ceiling of car pouch area also has leakage problem and the developer already fix it. the crack on the wall also had been done. The worker by then was busy to touch up the painting at the car porch. The road was still under laying tar progress.

    As far as i know, the developer will not issue cheques to the houseowners on the same day of handover although she pays the liquidation damages according to snp (and this is no interest impose).

    Normally house owners no need to do anything but just wait (to receive compensation). Unless the developer does not want to compensate according to snp, house owners then have to file claims to the corresponding bodies.

    Below is a report on Property Talk:

    "CURRENT and future buyers of Botanica.CT Garden Township will continue to be surrounded by good fortune for the next 20 to 40 years, according to renowned feng shui consultant Datuk Joey Yap.

    "He made the remark when he arrived at the launch of Botanica.CT’s Botanica 4 show villas to give a talk on Sunday.

    "He also claimed that fortune was shifting to the southwest side of Penang island or Balik Pulau where the garden township was located."

    @LH

    Thank you for the good sharing. No matter whether we believe in Feng Shui or not, I am sure this comment indeed make us the purchasers of Prestige 3 feel good.

    Actually, the material used for the houses are of good quality. I have checked with my contractor. I remember reading The Edge’s interview with the owner of this company.
    The company only paid RM13/sq ft for the land last time which is cheap.
    That’s why they are generous with the good quality material and offered at affordable selling price at RM468K for a Double Storey Freehold House.

    To put things into perspective how cheap is that, for example- the vast land around 2nd Penang Bridge at Main Land transacted at RM50/sq ft.
    Ivory paid RM250/sq ft for the land for the current Penang World City Project.
    That’s why a standard no-room 12th Floor studio 455sq ft with 1 car park is sold at RM512K, I saw this with my own eye in their sales gallery at Bayan Mutiara.
    Gentleman, no matter how people criticize or pour ice water, we should not bother as we really get a good deal.

    And I believe this developer is a trustworthy and they have generated a lot of good-will with their involvement with reviving abandoned project- Paya Terubung Majestic .
    Therefore, I have faith they will honour the compensation payment.

    Here is the history of all tsunami happened in the past. If u free, please check “indian ocean tsunami” and see how many times happen in the history. Just to remind u, the tsunami hit Aceh and Penang had earthquake moment magnitue of 9.1–9.3. which means, if P3 need to get hit by tsunami, it needs above 9.3 magnitude of earthquake and happen exactly in the deep of indian ocean floor.

    I used Google Map to see Balik Pulau.
    Can view the whole Prestige3 from eagle view!
    Previously, can see only 3 show houses, now the completed Semi-D,Double Storey, Single Storey and of course the landscaped garden- the size of football field.

    I also went to check the houses especially the row at which my unit is located. I smiled a lot and show respect to the workers :) Quality is good , Good material is used like expensive Solid Door.
    The Indonesian worker said ” rumah bapak elok” showing his thumb-up
    I wondered how the developer managed the cost as it is only RM468K , perhaps it is like what our friend said, the company bought the land cheap. Or , other developers are going after big profit margins.

    The company is also generous with allocation of land for the big landscaped garden, could have built few more rows of Houses to optimize profits.

U r worry something that is doesn’t need to be worry because u don’t even have science,geography knowledge. P3 is an affordable and good project, for other project in BP, some of them was former cemetery (not good to talk which project). Just do more homework and u may earn more than what u expected. If P3 really happen tsunami, I guess North of indonesia already gone case (2004 indian ocean is the 3rd largest earthquake in the history). Wish this will not happen else many people die.

    Okay, here is my opinion about tsunami.

    1. P3 definitely expose to tsunami risk because it is facing open sea. BP is more exposed compare to strait quay. The light is ok because facing dead sea.

    2. Depend on how disastrous the tsunami is. Those worst one can make up until 5km inland.

    3. Now, the question how much is the risk? 1 in 100, 200, or 500, or 1000 years? It’s all back to risk taking.

    Okay, here is my opinion about tsunami.
    Run your google map and you will understand. BP is facing open sea, correct. But the volcano line is block by Indonesia. So the strong tsunami will be coming from the north and will first hit North part of Island. It will of course hit BP but with weaker strength. Again look at Google map and you will understand.

    3) Buyers have to defend the weaknesses?

    hi all, i have few comment here and hope i am right and wish for good comment feedback,
    1) first , wish not to get OC fast base on current quality issues because if rush then they will simply solve it (may be just surface) so that they can tipu the authority to approve for CCC.
    2) if real problem no solve, we move (sure will do renovation) will it void the warranty ?
    3) if at the end they push to us and say the defect is due to our own reno, then die hard la, all defect we need to telan our self alrd
    hope my concern is valid and wish some one to share a good feedback here…thx

    1) the developer will handover the building as per scheduled( if possible) irrespective of customers’ requests.They have to take care their backside too!
    2)nearly all developers practicse cosmetic repairs only,this is true even to VERY VERY VERY BIG company.Move around the big projects,you can see all are”SAMA-SAMA”!
    3)unless structural faults require authority to take care,otherwise any defect answer same as #2. That is why secondhand houses fetch higher price(x n times!)

    Try yourself. From SMK Sungai Ara traffic lights to P3, it takes 30mins drive (unless u met turtle driver and not dare to overtake him). I tried before at 6pm+ weekdays after working hours (not friday) using relau route.

  139. c
    May 28th, 2014 at 13:09 | #139

    But for proper study the sample size should be much higher to make it more statistically accepted. Eg. Different days, and timing to get clearer picture.

    Anyway, travelling little more is not a big issue to me…..the surroundings, immediate infrastructure, safety/security are among main priorities as it is meant to be family home.

    I have tried myself bro, journey through the hill itself take average 13 mins (kaki bukit to kaki bukit). That’s y i am surprise @kk say 20-30 mins from BP house to Bayan lepas factory. Impossible. Teluk kumbar road also cannot, office hrs even worse for teluk kumbar. Tried already.

  141. ng
    May 28th, 2014 at 13:58 | #141

    @steven
    Yes, Relau kaki bukit till BP bus terminal (BP kaki bukit) need around 13mins. Around 8mins from BP bus terminal to P3. From these time taken, we can estimate there is 9mins left from relau kaki bukit to Bayan Lepas factory. Looks like not really happen unless it is weekend or the factory which near to snake temple.

  146. ohkui
    May 28th, 2014 at 16:55 | #146

    Time is one thing, the major issue is the hilly road. Chances of accident very high. If you happen to have one big lorry in front, that’s it, just follow the bloody turtle. Lorry breaks down, that’s it, jam for hours.

    Given a choice, 45 mins to BP vs 45 mins to Batu Kawan, I’d choose Batu Kawan anytime. Why? Coz you don’t have any bloody thing in BP. No modern civilization there! Only durians!

    Whereas for Batu Kawan, many things are coming up. Ikea, Ikano, luxury factory outlet, cinemas, country club, theme park, university, modern jobs (not pluck durian ah), you name it, they will have it. Another Bandar Utama in the making.

  147. bob
    May 28th, 2014 at 17:13 | #147

    my answer still BP. one lorry break down on penang bridge, jam for whole day! save money indeed, dont have to pay toll in BP hilly road.
    I like BP, n to be honest i like quiet place like BP. Once BK developed like bandar utama, other problems will come, traffic jam, new highway with toll (like KIDEX…hahaha),more social problem….totally not good for my kids. so u get one of the answer

    yes yes, everyday lorry breakdown – jam for hours and hours until now cannot move also. Batu Kawan always better, bridge no jam, no accident very smooth driving. Balik Pulau, no modern civilizition, some people still live in trees. Very very bad.

    As Batu Kawan the best, what you doing posting here ? Should be millions of people rushing to Batu Kawan. At the end, seems like desperate attempt promoting. House cannot sell ah ?

Easy, on my way to FTZ, can drop her there. or else, lot of primary schools in BP, not less than 5.

    For secondary school, do u know there is one new secondary school under construction in sg tiram? Heng Ee High school, ready for intake in January 2016. Again on my way to work, will drop her there. I believe, Heng Ee will have good quality school system.

I went over the site noticed the outdoor electrical fixtures were fixed and autogate lamp wiring had been checked.This indicating we can have our homes very soon. BTW, next year GST going to implement, expect Barang Naik. As such advise to do any renovention fast.

    You are right. For small towns, usually the teachers to students ratio is very low. Same goes for all the chinese villages throughout malaysia.

    However, it’s been proven the effectiveness of education is not about teachers to students ratio. It’s about the peers at school, social interactions, the competitiveness, extra-curriculum facilities and so on, that will prepare students for the new economy. “Jaguh Kampung” can no longer survive.

    What had u seen in show house re-renovation, the main reason is not about the crack. The PLB boss reject the previous house renovation due to feng shui and some flaws of the design. Of course there will be some crack issue due to those 3 houses are the 1st build and many constructions work happen at nearby of them after that.

    True, that’s why I am spending more than RM100K to fully renovate a single storey terrace at Sungai Nibong area. All because of my kids, we want them to get a place at Kwong Hwa Primary school. A small comfortable house but near to the good school for our kids.

    The double storey house that we bought at Balik Pulau is for the future, we hope the Teluk Kumbar rewidening road project will help to attract more people and development. We do not want to be left out if indeed Balik Pulau were to become the new Bayan Baru area.
    If not as expected, so be it, we already factored-in the risk. Our kids can inherit the freehold house. After all, RM468K can hardly get you a good big condo at establish location in Penang Island anyway.

    @Steven

    sounds like a wise plan.
    But what r u goin to do with this BP house now?
    weekend home or rent out?

    Doesn’t sound economical if depend on potential future appreciation alone. Perhaps any better idea?

    There’s pretty much nothing you can do with that house. Balik Pulau? Impossible to have someone to rent it even at a very low rental. Just let it collect dust.

    u deserve one word, brilliant! Nowadays, both property and our kids are investment. And you’re doing a great job here by investing in a such great pathway for both of them. If not both, at least u get back one. cheers

    Talking without pride or arrogance.
    We will stay in our small terrace house in Sungai Nibong for our kids to attend the nearby school. Nevertheless, We will still renovate our Prestige 3 House for our own usage with basic furniture, appliances etc.

    And no plan to sell landed properties in Island. Most probably, the kids will get to keep the houses. The landscape gardens at Prestige 3, the drive-up to Balik Pulau at 6pm to 7pm will give you breath-taking views, quiet towns, Durian Orchards, etc , those few reasons are good enough for you to keep both.

    And most important, my grand children will have bragging rights 30 years later, telling their friends how their grandfather bought the house at only RM468K.
    By that time, probably, the house price will reach a level beyond our imagination just like how unbelievable to know that Wantan Noodle cost only 5cent last time.

    To compensate for our small single storey house in Sungai Nibong, we also book a small apartment at the nearby Tropicana Bays Residence (Penang World City) to gain access to the clubhouse facilities, swimming pools, etc in 3 years. This project has the most number of pocket gardens, space for the kids to bicycle around, play around in the evening.
    Nowadays, everything is planned for the kids. How lucky they are if compared to our childhood last time.

    If for me, i will hold a family meeting to decide move or not to move to bp. School in bp good or bad depends on students. For me, any school is the same as long as convenient to yourself.

    Advise not to vaccant the house for too long as there bound to have “UNINVITED GUEST” to occupy the house,and very difficult to get them out. Believe it or not is UP TO YOU.

    agree wif dk.even how good the school is,if the student lazy everything also useless.
    Agree with Robert Tan, any house shouldn’t empty for whole year.very bad in term of feng shui.

    “……even how good the school is,if the student lazy everything also useless…”

    Have you ever come across a very GOOD school full of lazy students?

    Good school “would” not have “full of lazy students”….but the performance and demands required of the top 20% and the bottom 20% may not be the same. there are those that managed to get in by “borderline results” and some by connections….
    those that are not able to cope with the demands set by the school would be “placed” to the last/end few classes.

    Now the trend is famous school need more tuitions and non-famous school less tuition. End of the day, students will be suffered and depression due to too much homework and force from parent expectation. If the student is smart enough then good luck. If the kids are slow learner, then they will tend to give up all even in good school.

    @buyer88

    Precisely. There’s no such thing as “……even how good the school is,if the student lazy everything also useless…”. A good school is called a good school because of the various advantages it offers to students, namely, competitive culture, facilities, teaching staff, extra-curricula etc, all of which cannot be duplicated in another school overnight. And those are the advantages that you don’t get in rural schools.
